VAS & SSA Together

29 Jan - 8 March 2018

In a departure from the previous shared format the VAS and SSA exhibitions will be presented as a single exhibition, Open, jointly selected and curated by representatives of both societies. At the heart of the Open 2018, as always, will be the Open Submission, where we will join forces to show the furthest extremes of contemporary art practice, from craft to digital and everything in between. 

The Open Submission will be complemented by a number of curated projects staged individually by the societies.  We will bring you further details of our own programme, and that of the SSA, as they become available . . . 

Open Submission

We are now inviting artists working in any media to apply to be part of the biggest show of contemporary art in Scotland.
